HOPE HAVEN FILLS 45 to 50 BEDS A NIGHT WITH OUR LOCAL HOMELESS!!
(That doesn’t include those who don’t access services through Hope Haven.)

Dekalb County’s population in 2017 was 104,733. Out of this number 15.8% were at poverty level. Almost 16% of our population is at risk of being or has become homeless at some point.

We are also asking for new school supplies and Payless gift cards from $25-$40 to donate to our school district.

AT ANY GIVEN TIME THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR 6% of 6,600 STUDENTS IN OUR SCHOOLS IN DEKALB, IL ARE HOMELESS. THAT’S 200-300 CHILDREN FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL! (Contact our superintendent for more information.)

We are so excited to be putting on this event to help our local homeless. We look forward to seeing you November 18th at Tapa La Luna. Please PM or Call Tapa La Luna @ (815) 217-0990 or Amy Potempa @ (727) 479-9758 if you can’t make it but still want to donate. We will figure out the best way to accommodate you.
